Treacle Cottage

Ambleside, Ambleside/Troutbeck

Ref: 1323

  • Sleeps: 9
  • Changeover: Friday


This true Lake District property is in the heart of Ambleside. Feel the warmth of this home from home cottage while enjoying the traditional decor. Nestled in beautiful surroundings, with walks such as Jenkins crag, Wansfell or Borrans Park straight from the door, you could not ask for a better location.

Relax in the claw foot bath after a day on the fells, then chill in the garden with a cool,crisp glass of white. Each bedroom is individually decorated to suit all tastes. The two reception rooms offer plenty of comfortable seating, creating a social area for all the family to enjoy.

Enjoy a read of Beatrix Potter while seated in one of the many window seats, or relax and reflect on the day. Within a 5 minute walk, take the Windermere steamer across lake Windermere to the aquarium, or Bowness to visit the local attractions. Just a 10 minute walk takes you into Ambleside town centre, packed with bars, restaurants and boutique shops, sure to indulge your every need. A large childrens park next to the church offers hours of pleasure and fun for the kids, and the adults.


Treacle Cottage is set over three floors. Stone steps lead to the front door. On the ground floor there are essentially three reception rooms, ideal for that large social gathering or special family celebrations. The living room with old beams, comfortable furnishings and the wood burning  fire is cosy and welcoming.  The second sitting room also with oak beams and with ample seating, is ideal as a quiet room for relaxing and escaping with a book. Both have window seats with views to the fells and original wooden shutters, TV with Freeview and DVD. Go through to the cottage kitchen with slate floor, rangemaster hob and oven. Access from the kitchen is to the tiered gardens and patios. Two stone steps lead down into the dining room with a large family dining table and chairs.  There is very useful boot room/utility room where the washing machine/tumble drier is located.

Stairs lead to the first floor, where there are four bedrooms to choose from, two presented with king size beds and ensuite shower rooms, a twin bedroom and a pretty single bedroom which are complemented by a luxurious family bathroom with roll top bath, corner shower, basin and WC. The final bedroom suite, with double bed and en-suite bathroom, is located on the second floor and benefits from a lovely view to the fells.

To the rear of the property is a private lawned garden with tiered patio with garden furniture  to enjoy al-fresco living.
